Wow! What a great weekend to get out and see some fantastic new lofts!
Up until last week, there just didn't seem to be anyplace available for the first time home buyer or young professional that really wanted to be in the loft district. Two great developments opened up, among several others, that offered an option for someone in the moderate price range: the Windows Lofts at 1601 Washington, and the Adler Frame Lofts at 2035 Washington.
I heard that the McGowan/Walsh development of Windows Lofts reserved over half (17 of 33) units over the weekend. The units are a breath of fresh air from what I have seen in terms of new construction. Standard features are very attractive and generous (appliances included, washer dryer combo included, slate tile surrounds, exposed brick.....the works. I've gotten used to the whole upgrade games in working with new construction that its great to just walk in and say "this is what it will be," instead of "for $X,XXX you can have this and for $XXX you can have that too."
